Words you would never hear from a Mother:
¨ “Just leave all the lights on. It makes the house look more cheery.”
¨ “Sure, I used to skip school a lot, too.”
¨ “If Nancy’s Mom says it’s okay, that’s good enough for me.”
¨ “I don’t have a tissue with me. Just use your sleeve.”
¨ “Let me smell that shirt. Yeah, it’s good for another week.”
¨ When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
